MARINE CORPS AIR STATION IWAKUNI, Japan - A MV-22 Osprey tiltrotor aircraft is towed off the vehicle carrier vessel Green Lake at Marine Corps Air Station Iwakuni, Japan, May 28, 2024. The aircraft was offloaded from the vehicle carrier ship Green Lake to be delivered to the Japan Ground Self-Defense Force. MCAS Iwakuni is the only Marine Corps installation with a deep-water port and an airfield, giving the air station a unique position to support the dynamic transportation of various military assets throughout the Indo-Pacific.
